modelling for the seriously camera-shy

It is well-known that I have a very bad relationship with the camera. The camera doesn’t like me and I’m not at all fond of it being pointed in my direction.

How, then, to illustrate the hat I have just knitted?

Without showing my face, that’s how.

The pattern is Fugue by Kate Davies, knitted in Corriedale yarn by Old Maiden Aunt. It’s an interesting piece of colour-work that needs close attention to the chart, but rewarding, and I really like the Vikkel braid.


  1. Ooh, I do like this :D And I share your dislike of being photographed!

  2. Just what you need to survive the recent cold spell.

  3. Wow wow wow this is amazing! I wish I could knit like you!!! Just imagine how many phone calls I would have made to you in the process of knitting something so lovely! Xxx
